Good Friday

It's good Friday. It's an absolutely beautiful day here today. I just went to the web site and noticed the last entry is sort of a downer. We can't just leave that up for Easter weekend....

Frank and I did make the decision to talk to the kids over the phone on ski trip. We didn't make the decision lightly, but it has been confirmed by many that it was the right choice to make. Chandler even told me so face to face. That has given us a lot of peace about it.

It wasn't easy for them that night. There were many tears. But great good came from it. They were ministered to by the body of Christ is such a precious way. They came together as a family for each other. Not just the 3 of them, but cousins, and aunt too. And it taught them, as so many rallied around them, that they are never alone in this journey. And they did what we prayed they would do.... they had the freedom to "just let go" up on a mountain and work some things out. As a mom and dad, we want to be the ones to fix all their booboo ~ even booboo's of the heart ~ but life isn't that easy sometimes. Unfortantly at 12, 14 and 15, they know that all too well.

They are home now. And we are so happy to be together. My niece is here from DC too and we're going to cheer on the Memphis Tigers together. Yahoo.

Frank is all smiles today. He's been working, making sales calls and doing what he loves to do... be at Elliott. He's loved that job and the people he works with for 19 years. He jumped up bright and early when we got home to hurry into the office.

He got labs drawn from the our Memphis oncologist. WBC 2.3, Platelets 81. We want those to go up, so he won't have to get transfusions after this next treatment.

For the hugs, emails, comments, cards, and prayers.... we thank you.
